The David Bohm Society exists to inventory, preserve and promote David Bohm’s work and to explore and realize his proposals. It is our desire to have as much of Bohm's work as possible released into the public domain and archived at the Internet Archive. The David Bohm Society was founded in December of 2012 by Matthew Capowski.
The David Bohm Society has its roots in a previous project that was started in 2007, the Thought Knowledge Perception Institute, that explored proposals about what thought is doing to the world. This 2007 project ultimately resulted in the David Bohm Society being created.
There is an urgency to making Bohm's work more visible. It has extraordinary relevance to the future of humanity and our collective capacity to clear up the incoherence in thought and culture. This incoherence is perpetually creating the crises and difficulties that humanity continues to face.
Visit the David Bohm Society Projects page for more information about our current activities.
The David Bohm Society is currently operated by:
Matthew Capowski (Founder/Executive Director): Matthew's education is in psychology and he has spent most of his career working in child protection. Matthew encountered Bohm and Krishnamurti as a teenager and began to pursue their proposals seriously starting in 2002. Matthew started an organization in 2007 that eventually lead to and was replaced by this organization.
Igor Topilsky (Director): Igor has extensively explored group dialogue as envisioned by David Bohm along with the question of culture and its capacity to facilitate and inhibit dialogue. More recently Igor has focused on advanced metacognition and education.
There are a variety of ways to support us. Most important is your participation. Who knows what is possible if enough of us get together and really look at thought together. We need to find a way to allow people across the globe to connect and share and explore together and support each other. We will be using a variety of mediums for this: Skype or Google Hangouts, discussion forums, email list, in-person meetings, and so forth.
If you have or know of any material by or about David Bohm that we do not have listed on our website presently then please contact us.
We need resources. We fund everything out of pocket. If you have ideas about fundraising or are willing to contribute directly please let us know. We are not a registered non-profit, society, or charity at this time as we wish to be unencumbered by any procedural regulation. This may change in the future, but that means presently we cannot issue any kind of tax receipts for donations.
